Abstract

In the Star Trek universe, Scotty can ”beam you up” and teleport you to a location. Even though science fiction is yet to be reality, is teleporting still possible? Recently, we have developed a robotic platform that is capable of teleporting the behavior of fish from one tank to another through biologically-inspired robotic replicas which map the behavior of a fish from a tank to the other one. Our results indicate that behavioral teleporting is a promising tool to study the biological determinants of behavior. Here we demonstrate its use in pharmacological research, by investigating the effects of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors of social interactions.
